Pre-season fun - women's team videos

The European women's peloton officially start their season on Saturday, with the Omloop het Nieuwsblad - and while we're waiting, there are all kinds of videos and photo-shoots to welcome us into the season. Let's have a look at the teams for 2014, the bike equivalent of Downton Abbey, and more! Add anything you've seen recently to the comments

Here's a video put together by Wielerrevue, with footage from Qatar, the team's photo-shoot and interview with Ellen van Dijk (Dutch, but nice images if you don't understand the language!)


Hitec Products

Hitec's Elisa Longo Borghini was featured on RAI Sport's RadioCorsa last week - her segment starts at about the 40-minute mark (in Italian, of course)



I've posted these before, but I really love the mini Liv-Shimano videos on their You Tube with the riders talking about their season hopes and why they love cycling.  Here's fan-favourite Marijn de Vries - and I did enjoy Lucy Garner laughing at Lawson Craddock at the team launch, too...



No Lotto-made fun, but here's a video with their new signing Amy Cure talking about this week's Track World Champs, for Cycling Australia



Swedish tv went to see Emma Johansson training in Flanders in the rain.  In Swedish, as you can imagine, but it looks really nice - I'm pretty sure she's laughing at the weather at one point...

More Cycling Australia videos with ORICA riders at the Track World Championships this week, on the Cycling Australia youtube - Nettie Edmondson and Melissa Hoskins


Optum p/b Kelly Benefits Strategies

Photo-set from the Optum-Kelly women's team camp, on their facebook



Spec-lulu are always very good at this!  Here they are talking about the season for a Lezyne video - and there's a team camp set on their site, and more beautiful team camp photos by Emily Maye on the Specialized Women facebook (including Teute tattoos!)


United Healthcare

Video looking back at their 2013 men's team and ahead to 2014 for the men and the brand-new women's team.



This isn't specifically women's cycling, but it has Lizzie Armitstead and Jessie Walker in it.  I think the only way I can describe it is Downton Abbey on wheels...

and because some of you love MTB (sorry broerie!) here are some pre-season videos from the muddier side of the sport...

GoPro fun off-road and off the bike



I had to edit this in, when Colavita's Lindsay Bayer sent it to me on twitter :-)

If you've seen anything else you've particularly enjoyed, post it in the comments, where I'm adding all the tons of blogs and things that are being tweeted about tonight....  here's to getting a ton of racing videos very soon!
